  • Enjoyed our time here alot! Had fantastic sightings of elephants charging (bluffing)! Overall an awesome experience!
  • It was a great experience! We got there Jan-10, 2019 at around 3pm, paid for 2 tours, one for that afternoon and the second for the next morning. We were satisfied with the first tour so we decided to go see the surroundings instead (went up the hill and visited a nearby village ). They don't have vehicles there if you just show up. So you have to make that arrangement before you get there. We used our own vehicle, but they too have people they can contact for you to rent vehicles. We saw the elephants and other species. The sky was pretty at night because it is so dark. We had power for 4 hours only, 6 PM to 10 PM, as we were told on arrival. That made it even more awesome! Real camping, if you know what I mean. Too bad my woman was too scared to stay out and enjoy the stars. The sounds of the whild life could be heard all night. The road was safe from Ouagadougou to Nazinga. Nothing to worry about.
